I do not think that Dana will sign Fedor to a 1 fight deal and put him against a Top fighter. It would be a risky move because Fedor may beat his Top fighter and Dana will look like a complete idiot because we all know what kind of comments he has made towards Fedor in the past years.
As for M-1 being the second most important promotion...just No.
I think that ONE FC and Bellator are ahead of M-1.
I actually agree with you (for once) on all of your points.
If UFC does go to Russia - I don't see Fedor fighting at all. If anything they will have him do a guest interview or some promotional shots or pictures with Dana or something. But I do not believe he'll fight.
If he does though - I agree it'd be a one-fight type deal. I'd love to see Cro Cop vs. Fedor 2 , I don't think it will happen though. Fedor fought in June but also said he wouldn't fight in the UFC after his retirement and their failed negotiations. Also Cro Cop fights later this month.
I'd rather see that fight than Fedor vs. Brock or Couture at this point. And despite Dana's comments about Fedor he did make it an obsession to try and sign him at one point.
